"An Audit-Ready Calibration Program You Can Rely On"
Since metrology is defined as the science of measurement, we believe the only valid calibration processes are those that incorporate industry-accepted standards and principles into the process. Furthermore, not all pipette services follow this belief and will disguise this shortcoming with onsite convenience and low, low pricing. Since pipette accuracy requires strict controls and cannot be confirmed by eye, many scientists are unaware of the risks they are exposed to with substandard services.
At TTE Laboratories, our scientific staff maintains an ISO 17025-accredited measurement laboratory and quality system. There, compliance to the piston pipette calibration standard, ISO 8655, is our focus. Much of our technical staff at TTE Laboratories have an advanced degree and collectively average over 7 years of lab experience and training with piston pipettes and dispensers. We believe competent measurement quality starts with a competent staff and our scientific clients are the beneficiaries. A TTE Laboratories pipette calibration service will provide the most detailed, most complete, metrology-driven, pipette calibration services available. As the most widely accepted standard for piston pipette measurements, anything less than ISO 8655-compliance is substandard and unsupported, leaving scientists at risk for costly measurement inaccuracies. Unlike freezers and timers, non-compliant pipette calibration services can have a costly affect on scientific repeatability...much greater than you think.
At TTE Laboratories, our doors are open to the scientific community we service. We invite all prospective TTE clients to call and schedule a visit to our Hopkinton, MA laboratory and review our ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited calibration and quality system first-hand. You will find that we provide calibration traceable to the N.I.S.T. standard and an audit-ready certification progam to support even the most stringent cGMP/GLP critical quality systems. Our certificates meet or exceed the regulatory requirements of the FDA, ISO, USP41, CLIA and CAP. Accredited by APLAC(ILCA) MRA signatory, PJLA, Inc., TTE Laboratories is an accredited calibration reconized by A2LA, NVLP, ACLASS, L-A-B.
What does all this mean? With TTE Laboratories, your pipettes will be returned in tolerance, completely refurbished and performing like new. Your certificate is traceable to the N.I.S.T.standard In addition, each reported measurement is accompanied by a properly calculated measurement uncertainty value (mu). This qualifies each measurement by accounting for all the variables that could result in a undetected deviation from the actual measurement. Without this value, N.I.S.T. traceability cannot be achieved and the measurement is invalid. Avoid the risks of substandard service providers and choose the metrology-based calibration service of TTE Laboratories.
Other ISO-accredited pipette service providers may take a week or two to certify your pipette. TTE Laboratories provides next-day return service on all prescheduled calibration and only 2 or 3 business if you ship them in without notice. That's correct! With proper scheduling, your pipettes will be calibrated at TTE Laboratories and returned within 24 hours. We are proud to complement our ISO accredited pipette calibration services with our signature NEXT DAY turnaround, standard for all prescheduled calibration services with TTE Laboratories. So don't settle for substandard onsite services and don't wait days or weeks for compliance quality. Go with a proven leader. Choose TTE Laboratories and get audit-ready calibration quality with a fast turn-around.
